Impairment of Long-Lived Assets
 
In accordance with SFAS No. 144, “Accounting for the Impairment or Disposal of Long-Lived Assets,” the company evaluates long-lived assets for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of those assets may not be recoverable. Factors considered important that could trigger an impairment review include, but are not limited to, significant underperformance relative to historical or projected future operating results and significant changes in the manner of use of the assets or the company’s overall business strategies. Potential impairment exists if the estimated undiscounted cash flow expected to result from the use of the assets is less than the carrying value of the asset. The amount of the impairment loss represents the excess of the carrying value of the asset over its fair value. Management estimates fair value based on a projected discounted cash flow method using a discount rate that is considered to be commensurate with the risk inherent in the company’s current business model. Additional factors are taken into consideration, such as local market conditions, operating environment and other trends.

This excerpt taken from the JAS 10-K filed Apr 19, 2007.
Impairment of Long-Lived Assets
 
Under Statement of Financial Accounting Standards (“SFAS”) No. 144, “Accounting for the Impairment or Disposal of Long-Lived Assets,” long-lived assets, except for goodwill and indefinite lived intangible assets, are reviewed for impairment when circumstances indicate the carrying value of an asset may not be recoverable. Assets to be disposed of are recorded at the lower of carrying value or estimated net realizable value. We conduct this review on an ongoing basis and record any required impairment charge. The Company performed impairment tests during the fourth quarter of fiscal 2007, fiscal 2006 and fiscal 2005. Impairment cost for closed stores is recorded in store pre-opening and closing and impairment for stores still in operation is recorded in selling, general and administrative expenses (“SG&A”) on the consolidated statement of operations. Asset impairments include write-downs of fixed assets to their estimated fair value for stores closed, or

scheduled to be closed, where impairment exists. The asset impairment represents the difference between the asset carrying value and the future net discounted cash flows estimated by the Company to be generated by those assets. As a result of the evaluation, impairments of $4.1 million, $3.0 million and $0.6 million, respectively, were recorded, in fiscal years 2007, 2006 and 2005 with respect to assets of certain stores still in operation.
